    Default Breaking :Gay Marriage Referendum likely next year.

    Hearing from usually reliable sources, and the INDO are sniffing it on twitter but not biting, that the Government are to announce, perhaps after todays cabinet business, but that is unclear, that they have agreed to have a referendum on gay marriage next year.

    More as I get it.

    Good news if true. Although it shouldn't (and legally doesn't, IMO) need a referendum, will be good to tackle this one head on.

    Cue the moaners who don't think countries can focus on different issues at the same time...

    Great news. Delighted the people will make the decision to ensure Irish gay men and women are afforded the same rights as heterosexual Irish men and women.

    Don't mean to be debbie downer, but it has all pong of a major trade off vis the abortion legislation. We shall see.

    A yes vote from me. Time for a vote on legalising abortion as well. I'm slightly more optimistic about this country now.
